Travelling with children requires organisation. We can literally lighten the load by arranging to have some of the paraphernalia bought for you in advance and having the other equipment here for your use. That lets you concentrate on the fun things!
Please let us know if there is anything else that would help you, and we’ll do our best to assist.
We do not provide formal childcare, because our aim is to provide the best environment for children to be with their parents on holiday. However, we can from time to time arrange for babysitting, but if there is a particular date that you would like, please let us know in advance.
We serve children’s dinner at around 6.00 when parents are dining at the Chateau. This consists of a main course and a pudding (often seasonal fruit or fruit tart etc.). Parents serve to suit their own children, and usually enjoy a glass of wine while keeping an eye on the proceedings. Children find it fun to eat all together, and it becomes a lovely part of the day’s ritual for them. If you are arriving later, and wish your children to eat before the adults, then please do mention it, as it helps us. Children then have enough time for a run around before bed, when the grown-ups meet for an aperitif, at around 8.30.
We are planning to run a French Course in 2009, please let us know if you are interested, since places will be very limited.
